Business Work.

Hello!  It's been a pretty hectic week for me, first off with our pre-production deadline monday, followed by two excessive nights out drinking, a day hangover and finally closing the week off with out first business module course work hand in.

This consists of out C.V.s, cover letters and business cards.  so far I've done the C.V. and business card.  The cover letter wouldn't be so interesting but I'm thinking of writing to either Pixar, Dreamworks Animation and/or Blue-Zoo studios in London.  So here's the C.V. and business card! WOO.

Here's the C.V. closed up, basically the both bottom and top parts of the sheet fold upwards/downwards to show the inside: 

...and my name and C.V. are here! :D

This will be the (now) front of my business card, with my DaniSaur silhouette in the background of my initals.

...And the back of my card, showing all my simple important details! :)

Now onto the cover letter...!


Business Card: Back

Here's a few WIPs of my business card back.  I know it looks boring... but I wanted it to look clean and smart!


On other news, that hand image is actually my attempt on setting up an FK/IK switch!  It's really difficult but hopefully once I get it I can upload a little tutorial for you all.  Until then, it's sleep time for me!


Stretchy IK in Maya


Haven't posted in a while, but I can assure you work (paid work) and work (pre-production work) couldn't get any more... work-ier!  Christmas and New Years have been a blast, but now it's back to reality.

I'll have to post what I've been working on later on today (as I'm in work paid work currently!) so I thought I'd do a bit of research into stretchy IK setups!  Also known as "Stretchy Bones".  This useful video (well it visually looks useful [there's no speakers on this computer!!]) seems easy enough to follow.

It's cool in Maya, because whenever you create something, or generally do anything in Maya it documents it in the Mel script, so I can easily generate a script regarding... just about anything!  Easy as that!  Cool huh?  Will have to upload a few videos to show you what I mean.

Until then, it's been 2D work, like turnarounds and Alien bones setups. :)

Just found a "Seamless IK FK rig" video.  I'm in awe.  I'd want my rigs to look this good!


EDIT #2:

Haven't got time to watch it all so I'll post it here to watch later.  I'm going to give this a go tonight I reckon! :)
